The taboo of speaking out against The Mother is messing us up. The Uncles and Fathers get the worst rap  –  for good reason, sadly, according to the numbers  — but there are Mothers out there doing harm, too.

We just don’t allow ourselves to talk about it. The infallible icon of The Mother is a big one to address much less topple. We are socialized with language surrounding Mother Countries and tell tales of superpowers of the all-seeing maternal eye, one that can see you sneaking into a darkened house after curfew or knowing you’ve grabbed that extra cookie despite being across the house with her back turned.
